The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at St. Cuthbert’s Primary School spend a great deal of time using the internet at school and at home. This is why it is important that pupils at St. Cuthbert’s learn how to be safe when browsing online and especially when they become members of online communities.

In school, children learn about E-Safety through a scheme of lessons along with assemblies and workshops with parents.

We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safely when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.

Our children know to report any inappropriate content, contact or conduct they encounter online by speaking with a member of staff immediately or by using the contact form at the top of this page.

Can we encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers please click the text below.

We also suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should be on Facebook, if they are then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe. www.internet-safety.yoursphere.com

Children and young people spend a lot of time online – it can be a great way for them to socialise, explore and have fun. But children do also face risks such cyberbullying or seeing content that’s inappropriate.That’s why it’s important for them to know how to stay safe online. The NSPCC has their own online safety website that is an excellent source for parents, children and teachers.


If you would like more information regarding E-Safety please take a look at our E-Safety policy located in the policies section of the website.
